My place is close to Weather Up, Drinks Lounge, Stay Gold, Craftsmen, a food truck park, The Whisler. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets). I'm in the east Chavez area.. a part of East Austin that is currently thriving... also within walking distance of the downtown dirty 6th area.

Great location, that is true, but the place was a mess (pictures hid that just behind the camera) and there were most droppings on the kitchen counter and a mouse, or mice, in the walls. Also, the year was a mess compared to the pictures. All the other reviews are great, so maybe…

Response from James:
Hi, thanks for feedback. I think its accurate to say the place was a mess. It was clean when you arrived. Theres some new things like a TV and night stand in the bedroom, a couple new lamps that make it seem a little more small I suppose and some of the wall art is different but the living room, bathroom and kitchen are basically exactly like the photos and the bedroom has a few more things in it. There is some clutter at the foot of the bed but you can see that in one of the photos, the one looking towards the living room from the bedroom. I'm sorry about the mouse, when I left it wasn't an issue. Its a very old house, stripping on the door wouldn't prevent that. When it gets colder in austin a lot of people get a mouse come in, when I'm aware of it I take care of it but I wasn't previously. It doesn't sound like you actually encountered the mouse or it bothered you. In your private feedback you mentioned the yard being a mess compared to the pictures. I disagree with that as well, The lawn guy came recently, I think it was the additions to the yard when you were expecting an empty yard. I added a small table and chair set, a little 8 foot pool, a basketball hoop, a grill, a cornhole/bags set and some clothesline. So its not wide open space anymore but its a big yard you can park in that has recreational items in it.

No frills stay. The place is in a great neighborhood filled with high quality and unique food and drink options. The bed was quite comfy and the space was certainly big enough for two people. And James was quite responsive when a TV issue arose during our stay. However, the hous…

The epitome of a no frills stay. If you're looking for a cheap place to crash after a long night of drinking, this will handle that. Just don't expect anything more. Also see if you can find an alternate place to shower. It's a bit difficult to get it to where water starts coming…

Response from James:
I think the listing and photos accurately represent the place. Theres a photo showing how tight it is to fit both air mattresses in the living room. I do explain the water pressure is low but most guests find it satisfactory. The cup is to rinse the tub when you're done...didn'tt intend it for bathing purposes but if it helps thats good. I don't keep a trash can in the kitchen, just trash bags that are on the counter but there is one in the bathroom and a large one in the yard.

Very convenient east Austin location, a quick uber to anywhere you need to be. Small space but a great value for its proximity.

We were very happy with the location! Lyft ride was only $6 to Rainey st and to 6th street (we walked that too - about 20 mins). Would definitely stay there again.

The description was accurate and James had good communication. He was easy to get a hold of when questions arose before and during the stay. It was nice and cozy and close to where we needed to be. Everything was easily accessible and James knew what he was doing. Would stay ther…

Hey sorry about that. Thats something I can't fix. You can get warm water though, its little tricky with where you place the handle. This is the first time anyones mentioned the water temperature though.

James was very communicative and we checked in very easy. House was cleaned recently and everything was in order; kitchen well-stocked but a tad disorganized (couldn't easily find a trash can, etc.). James was honest about the low water pressure in the shower; made for a rough bu…
